Katherine Kasdorf, Mellon Fellow in South Asian and Islamic Art, begins this Make Night with a discussion of works from the Walters’ Asian art collection. Following the talk, Martha McAlpine of Charm City Yoga will lead a 90-minute kundalini yoga workshop for all skill levels in the serene Renaissance Sculpture Court. Kundalini is used to release the “coiled energy” at the base of the spine so that it can flow up and out through the crown of the head. Participants will practice simple breathing techniques paired with repeated physical motions that strengthen and open the physical body.
A limited number of mats will be available, so please bring your own.
Charm City Yoga Members will receive the member discount. Please contact Jayne Levinson or Allison Korycki at 800-336-9642, ext. 1, for the member code.
Martha McAlpine has practiced yoga for 16 years, exploring astanga, vinyasa, yin, kundalini, yoga trance dance, and, most recently, anusara styles of yoga. Her classes emphasize the space from one pose to the next as well as the poses themselves.
